What album(s) are you listening to?


Recommended Posts

For the last week 2/10 - 2/16

Against All Logic (AAL) - 2017-2019 ; Electronic

The JaarGawd returns. I wasn't as head over heels for the previous AAL release. I liked it, and I similarly like this albums as well. 

 

Obongjayar - Which Way Is Forward ; World R&B

Slick, fun R&B album. Easy to listen to.

 

Yppah - Sunset in The Deep End ; Electronic

Yppah previous album was a huge earworm. Still throw on tracks from it to this day. Really digging this new album. 

 

Ovrkast - Try Again ; Hip Hop

Fanatastic production. Much like Earl, this album has that early Oughts' jazz-hop sounds ala Nujabes, Madlib, J-Dilla. Retro baby.

 

Tame Impala - The Slow Rush ; Alternative

You know what you are getting here. Its got vibes, is groovy, its fun.

 

EDEN - No Future ; Alt Pop

The Production is fantastic. Mega Earworm.

From 2/21 to 2/28

 

Grimes - Miss Anthropocene -  Pop

The One and True Queen of the Internet Slobs has graced us with her siren's call once again. Been ride or die on Grimes for years now, so obviously I really enjoy this album. Perfect blend of catchy pop music and elements of dark synth wave. Yeah, bring on our Robot Overlords, im cool with it. 

 

Moses Sumney - Grae Pt 1 - Alternative R&B?

Album has been a slow burn for me. I think its luster got sideswiped by Grimes release. I haven't given the album its full due, but the few run throughs I have had, I do enjoy it quite a bit

 

King Krule - Man Alive! - Alternative

Its.... fine I guess. The internet loves King Krule, and I get it. Easy listen, but nothing is really standing out. I never find myself hitting repeat or getting absorbed in any of the tracks. 

 

Gil Scott-Heron and Makaya McCraven - We're New Again - Jazz

Not a huge fan of jazz, but this album really draws you in. I immediately recognized GSH voice from the many, MANY tracks that sampled him. His voice and lyrics just grab you, and pull you tight.

Never gave Danzig a chance before, because only the weird kids at school wore his shirts. How ignorant I was! This is heavy metal Jim Morrison and I love it.

Caribou - Suddenly : Electronic

Fun little electro wank album. Caribou always delivers 

 

Soccer Mommy - Color theory : Indie

Its …. fine I guess. Not sure why the internet is obsessed with this album. Its sorta just standard solo-indie singer songwriter stuff. Throwing in with Snailmail, Big Thief, Purple Mountains, Alex G, etc. Fine but whats all the hubabub about.

US Girls - Heavy Light ; Alternative

Man, US Girls has been killing it. Loved their last release, and this new album is so stacked with GOOD VIBES. Loving the disco-lite shift in sound. +

 

The Weeknd - After Hours ; R&B

Been riding the Weeknd train since House of Balloons tape WAYYYYYY back in the Oughts. This album is fantastic. I thoroughly love the 80's synth elements sprinkled throughout. Production is top level. And the Weeknd cycle continues.

1. Im a horrible boyfriend, drugs, alcohol partying

2. You left me, I am sad please take me back

3. Im over it, new beginnings PARTY TIME

4. Im so in love with this new girl.

5. REPEAT

 

Wajatta - Don't Let Get You Down ; Electronic - House

Dope little House album. Always had a softspot for this sound.

This album is just brilliant. Mac had transitioned from a most dope chill rapper (with great songs/beats) that you want to smoke and enjoy life to to a brilliant artist. He was on an easy trajectory to becoming one of the top artists in the entire industry.

Back and forth between Gigaton the new Pearl Jam album and Mother the new In This Moment album.

The new Pearl Jam seems heavily influenced by The Talking Heads so I rocked out to their greatest hits on the way to work and home today B|

Empress of - Im Your Empress of : Pop

Man this album is so addicting. Very, VERY similar to Robyn's - Honey in that regard. Honestly, I feel like Empress of found that sweet, sweet spot between FKA Twigs, Charli XCX and Robyn. Pure pop, pure fun. 

 

Yves Tumor - Heaven to A Tortured Mind ; Alternative

Huge fan of their previous release, this one is just as listenable. Transitioned away from the darker, louder sound, to a more 70s Psychedelics- Tama Impala vibe. 

 

Purity Ring - WOMB ; Electronic

Pure Purity Ring. Huge fan of their two previous releases, and this album is right there. Think a molasses electro wank. Love it.

 

Emancipator - Mountain of Memory ; Downtempo

Always been a fan of Emancipator for a downtempo vibes.
